In the early days of the internet when dial-up lines were clogged with users 
and busy signals bandwidth was an issue. I haven't had a problem with 
bandwidth for a long time now and as far as I know it's not an issue anymore. 
I guess it is still an issue for anyone using dial-up and in a case like that 
a net install is likely in order.

When I first started using linux I was still using dial-up myself. In those 
days I downloaded the first two cd's and most of what I needed was on those 
disks, only a small number of packages was downloaded from my sources.list,
much patience was needed.. :)

My current isp provides amazing speed and bandwidth, I don't miss those 
dial-up days at all.. :)
